A nice trail around Mallard Lake.

Features Birding · Lake · River/Creek · Spring · Waterfall · Wildflowers · Wildlife

Description

This trail takes you from the north side of Mallard Lake through the stands of hardwoods and lowlands around Gale Run. Follow the blue marks. This trail is soggy during any wet period and you can count on your boots being soaked in spring, but it is well worth the trip if for no other reason than seeing the spicebush and thick stands of cherry trees!

Flora & Fauna

Cherry trees and spicebush.
